Bleacher Report’s new live stream Open Run, a 2 on 2 basketball game featuring some of hip hop’s biggest stars, kicked off on Saturday with a matchup between Quavo and Jack Harlow against 2 Chainz and Lil Baby. Quavo, an Atlanta native, put up a dominating performance scoring 17 of his team’s 21 points as well in addition to 14 rebounds. Fans across social media were impressed but not fellow musician Chris Brown.
The “Go Crazy” singer took to Instagram taking shots at the Migos rapper. “They knew who not to ask for that 2 on 2 basketball. I would’ve cooked Quavo and Jack,” Brown posted to his Instagram story. “Guess they wanted a smoke free zone.”
It didn’t take long for Quavo to respond. The rapper took to his own Instagram story declaring “Chris Brown ain’t cooking nan. Call next”
Both hip hop stars have an impressive basketball background. Quavo won the NBA Celebrity All-Star Game MVP award back in 2018. Breezy also played in the All-Star weekend event back in 2006 as well as in a variety of charity basketball games over the years.
Whether or not a matchup between the two celebs will come to fruition is unclear. Quavo’s involvement in basketball popular culture isn’t ending anytime soon however. The rapper announced a youtube series featuring NBA stars last month. Read our story on that here.
